"The entire education system is in an unprecedented time of upheaval. Students are scared and are looking for options. Quality, affordable degree options that can be completed entirely online, allow people to stay safe and close to family," said Optimal CEO Sung Rhee.

“This distinction attests to the quality of our online programs,” said MCC President, Dr. Beverly Walker-Griffea. “As we navigate the new normal of delivering more course content online, we will continue to provide the highest quality education to our students, enabling them to achieve their educational and career goals.”

Optimal researched 550 community colleges, and gave each a score based on a variety of factors. Only schools that scored 70% or higher were included on the rankings. In order to be considered for a ranking list, community colleges need to be regionally accredited and offer at least one fully online associate degree.

The methodology for the rankings incorporated many factors important to the success of a community college, including retention rate, graduation rate, and the variety of programs available. Additionally, the rankings weigh the percent of students enrolled in online degrees specifically, as an indicator of the success of the college’s distance education program.

The average price of the community college degrees on the ranking lists is approximately $4,000 annually, providing significantly more affordable options than traditional, campus-based degrees.

Optimal helps prospective students make informed, data-driven decisions to improve their collegiate experience and their post-college careers. The company provides over 85,000 in-depth student reviews and college rankings for every major based on alumni salaries and manually researched tuitions.
